To reveal the content of and changes in the Norwegian Labour Party in relation to these two variables, it is necessary ...

      Czachesz, Istvan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-13)
      This article explores the connection between sexual selection and religion, locating the origins of religious behavior in mate guarding after the transition to terrestrial life in <i>Homo erectus</i> 1.8 million years ago. An important consequence of the transition was the emergence of a polygynous, multiple-family social structure, which gave rise to mate guarding as a successful strategy. Further, ...

      Aarekol, Lena; Ryymin, Teemu (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2006)
      Since the late 1970s, Norwegian historians have debated the standing of photographs in historical research.

      Nilsen, Gørill; Wickler, Stephen (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2011)
      The remains of both prehistoric and historic period boathouses are visible in the landscape as collapsed walls of turf and rock or stacked rocks with an openended rectangular outline. These structures are located along present and former shorelines, river and stream banks, lakes and other bodies of water. Their openings usually face the water to facilitate boataccess.
    • "Bokläsning i Lund omkring 1880" 

      Hansen, Poul Henning (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2014)

    • The de-dramatization of history and the prose of bourgeois life 

      Fulsås, Narve (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-20)
      Emperor and Galilean has received renewed interest the last decade. It has been revalued and upgraded, it has been attributed a major role in the development of Ibsen’s authorship, and it has been interpreted as an expression of the new uncertainties of modernity. The play definitely deviates from Ibsen’s earlier historical dramas; it does not hold up an exemplary past or try to emulate a ...

      Smith, Michele Hayeur; Smith, Kevin P.; Nilsen, Gørill (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-14)
      Yarn and textiles recovered from prehistoric Dorset and Thule culture sites in the Eastern Canadian Arctic have raised questions about the extent and timing of indigenous and Norse interaction in the New World, whether the yarn represents technological transfers between Greenland's Norse settlers and the Dorset, or whether these Indigenous Arctic groups had independent fiber technologies before ...
    • Endring i samisk og norsk husholdsstruktur: Nord-Troms og Finnmark i perioden 1865 til 1900 

      Jåstad, Hilde Leikny (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      I siste del av 1800-tallet sank andelen eldre som bodde sammen med egne voksne barn i Nord-Troms og Finnmark. Artikkelen diskuterer i et etnisk perspektiv hvilken effekt alder, kjønn, ekteskapelig status og stilling som husholdsoverhode hadde på denne typen samboerskap, og hva som bidro til endring. Analysen viser at nedgangen, uavhengig av etnisk tilknytning, var et resultat av at enker og enkemenn ...

    • Farlige hekser fra Harstad-området 

      Hagen, Rune Blix (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2016-11-11)
      Flere av de kvinnene som ble dømt og brent på bål for alvorlige trolldomsforbrytelser under de brutale hekseprosessene i Øst-Finnmark på 1600-tallet kom fra Harstad og andre steder i Sør-Troms. Mange av disse var tjenestejenter som møtte sin grufulle skjebne i fiskeværene langt mot nordøst. Under såkalt pinlig forhør, altså tortur, innrømmet mange at de hadde lært trolldomskunsten der de kom fra.
    • Fortellinger i nordnorsk minoritetshistorie 

      Ryymin, Teemu; Nyyssönen, Jukka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Den norske historieskrivingen om samene og kvenene har fra 1970-tallet av vært preget av skiftende måter å fortelle om disse store nordlige etniske minoritetenes historie. I denne artikkelen diskuterer vi hvilke fortellingsmønstre som har preget den norske historieskrivingen om samene og kvenene, og hva slags betydning de ulike fortellingsmønstrene kan sies å ha hatt. Vi identifiserer tre forte ...
    • "From the Expeditio Litteraria of Maximilian Hell (1768-1770) to La Recherche of Paul Gaimard (1838-1840): Northernmost Fennoscandia in the Encyclopædic Tradition of Science" 

      Aspaas, Per Pippin (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2008)
      How are we, as historians of science, to deal with the history of scientific expeditions whose aims and scope covered multiple branches of research? Should we content ourselves to study the underlying, socio-political contexts motivating the expeditions, and give examples of what impression the local population, the nature, climate, etc. of the region made on the visiting scientists? Or should we ...
